Overview

Hannah Perley is just like so many almost-nine-year-old girls. She's a daughter, a sister, a neighbor, a friend. But lately her life has become much more challenging. There's the birth of a fragile orphan lamb whose life rests in Hannah's willing but unsure hands. And even more worrisome are the growing demands of the war. Everyone in Fairfield has been doing their best to support the colonial soldiers in their battle for American independence. But now the war has come into Hannah's very own home as her beloved brother Ben decides to join the fight. And as Ben's departure looms, Hannah finds that she must try a little harder, understand a little better, and perhaps grow up a little faster than she ever thought she would. This story will be part of a trilogy chronicling the years of Hannah's life as she and her family face the trials of the Revolutionary War. With Hannah of Fairfield the author's wondrous tradition of stories that expand young people's views of themselves and their world continues on its stellar path.

For almost nine-year-old Hannah Perley of Fairfield, Connecticut, growing up means facing new challenges, both great and small--from saving the life of a baby lamb to helping the family prepare to send her brother Ben to join the colonial soldiers in the American Revolutionary War.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Lois Rubin Gross
The first in a trilogy of stories about the Colonial Perley family, this brief historical novel portrays a young girl's life in New England. Hannah complains about her domestic chores and longs for more intriguing work, like caring for a new baby lamb. But her attitude shifts when the family sets to making a suit of clothes for her beloved brother, Ben, leaving to fight the invading British. Hannah spins, weaves, and sews with new found determination inspired by sisterly love. This spunky eight-year-old is a worthy guide through the Colonial period, and her contemporary spirit will give middle grade readers a lively heroine with whom to identify. Part of the "Pioneer Daughters" series.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-The encroaching effects of the Revolutionary War are being felt more and more by the Perley family of Fairfield, CT, in the spring of 1777. Hannah, nearly nine, is worried that her beloved brother will defy their father and run away to war and is also struggling to master the tasks knitting, spinning, and embroidery expected of her. Her desire to meet her family's expectations coupled with minor resentment of the female conventions of the day is something that any child can relate to and brings Hannah to life for young readers. The resolution of events brings closure yet leaves room for the projected sequels in what is planned to be a trilogy. Short sentences, relatively easy vocabulary, and large type together with an age-appropriate protagonist mark this as a transitional chapter book. Diamond's finely detailed artwork expertly helps to set the scene and identify the characters. A solid entry by an amazingly versatile author.-Faith Brautigam, Gail Borden Public Library, Elgin, IL Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
By 1776 the British army had taken control of two key areas, New York City and Long Island Sound. For Hannah, nine, and her family, the troops are a real threat to their community, just across the sound in Fairfield, Connecticut. Hannah's older brother Ben wants to go join the forces under General Washington, but his father will have none of it at first; when British warships are sighted he reluctantly gives the boy his blessing. For two days the female members of the household spin, weave, and sew suitable clothing; Hannah, who has never been good at domestic duties, is afraid she won't be able to do her part, but masters her chores. Van Leeuwen makes this story-the first in the Pioneer Daughters trilogy-compelling through the picture of daily life during the era: Everyone does everything that needed to be done, whether they wanted to or not. It's clear that Hannah has plans beyond the household; her saving of a baby lamb, and the influence of her Granny Hannah, who was a midwife and nurse, indicate that someday she will move on, but meanwhile, there is work to be done for the family's survival. Her story-especially the details that are usually relegated to sidebars and laundry lists in history books-will entertain and inspire anyone who is interested in the past.
